This new entry in the collection of fresh (though minimalist) word puzzle games visually implies one thing but plays very differently. With the appearance of a crossword puzzle you could rightly assume there being some element of that traditional game at play, but you’d be wrong. The words and their connections are only incidental and for aesthetics really, your challenge is to methodically fill in the proper letters to complete each word. Where it gets tricky is that your pool of letters only allows you to use each one once, so if you want to avoid ripping out your hair you’ll want a solid process for working through more complex and specific words and leaving ones with many possibilities alone for as long as possible. This undoubtedly will make you flex your on-demand vocabulary as you ponder all possibilities so if you’re a real word puzzle buff this may be a welcome challenge.
